Please Welcome Fahad Alazzawi Our Student Pharmacist at Happy Druggist on Karl Road for August.

74F4802D-86AF-4DDD-A8B1-F3F7616966ECThis month, we are joined at Happy Druggist on Karl Road by Fahad Alazzawi, a fourth-year pharmacy student from The Ohio State University’s College of Pharmacy.

Fahad will graduate in May 2023 with his PharmD degree and will then take the test to become a registered pharmacist. Fahad will be with Kristie and the staff on Karl Road throughout August, so please stop by and meet him while he is in the pharmacy.

Here is what Fahad tells us about himself:

My name is Fahad Alazzawi. I am a fourth-year pharmacy student at The Ohio State University. I have worked with Walmart for nine years, as a Pharmacy intern for four years, and as a pharmacy technician for five years.

I was born in Iraq and moved to the US back in 2010. I started high school by learning the basics of English; however, with the help of my teachers, friends, and family, I was able to learn and thrive.

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2019 and started pharmacy school immediately after. My experience has been mainly with chain pharmacies. Therefore, I am excited to be at Happy Druggist independent pharmacy this month. My goal is to learn more about the excellent services our local pharmacies provide and the challenges they face.

A couple of reasons led me to pursue pharmacy; one of them was that my uncle is a pharmacist back in Iraq. I saw him providing care to people who could not see their doctor, encouraging me to think about what we give.

After I graduate, I am planning to practice as a community pharmacist. I chose community pharmacy to maintain patient interactions and provide care when needed.

Outside of pharmacy, I love playing and watching soccer.
